No long lines.
Keep your coat on.
And your boots.
And your belt.
And keep your computer in your laptop bag.
Just put your bags on the conveyor belt and walk on through.
Age and an unusual name finally have their benefits.
It will soon be replaced,
and there are people who will miss it terribly.
My sister is the port commissioner of the Portland Airport,
and when it was decided that the carpet was in bad need of replacement,
it was discovered that this carpet has somewhat of a "cult following".
There are t-shirts with this pattern,
and a Facebook Page.
So, next time you travel through the PDX,
stop and take a picture of yourself standing on the carpet,
and post it on www.facebook.com/pages/The-Carpet-at-Portland-Airport.
